"Leveraging Compensation & Benefits in Today’s Labor Market"

The HRA of Greater Oak Brook is hosting a session designed to explore how employers are leveraging compensation & benefits to attract and retain the types of talent needed in the current economy. We believe the current labor market is fundamentally changing the assumptions leaders have about what works.

This session will be presented in an active, thought-provoking and practical way as to what trends are making an impact in 2019 and how to structure your total rewards strategy in order to attract, retain and motivate all types of workers (and sell it to leadership). Come prepared to work and to be inspired and to share with your colleagues in this format where you will have a chance to both listen to expert opinions in short-talk type presentations and to work in groups on practical applications.

Speakers represent Compensation & Survey Analysis, Retirement Plans, Manager of Compensation & Benefits in Non-Profit, and Practice Leader in Global Benefits.

This program is approved for 1.5 PDC's per SHRM and HRCI
